I've Joined the Board of the Amherst Historical Society & Museum
I am pleased to announce that I recently joined the Board of the Amherst Historical Society & Museum.
Like many local historical societies and house museums, this organization faces numerous challenges: financial constraints, changing cultural preferences, and more.
Fortunately, the 250th anniversary, a committed group of supporters, and a Board with a recent record of dynamic and innovative leadership, as Betty Sharpe hands the reins of power (such as they are) to Henry Pope, all suggest that the challenges may be matched by achievements.
In any event, I look forward to the challenges, and to the opportunity to deepen and share my understanding of Amherst and New England history.
